We had been here several years ago and remembered it being very good. We were very disappointed. Chips and salsa were not good (although were free). Chicken fajitas-came on the typical steaming skillet which kept the chicken and onions hot but the flavor was not good. They were salty. Chicken burrito was also not very good -very dry. Beers were... More

Nice atmosphere and a good selection of drinks at a good price. The food was merely average though. I'd certainly return but if you're looking for good Mexican food, I'm sure there's better out there

The great: nacho chips that were warm, light and crispy. Astoundingly low prices. Great mango smoothie. Poor: we ordered vegetarian quesadilla and fajitas. This was basically frozen mixed veggies that had been heated up. No Mexican spices or sauces. The sour cream and guacamole on the side didn't make it into anything special. My flour tortillas were cold. The food... More

Benedictnz, Thanks for the visit. Sorry you were disappointed with your vegetable quesadillas and fajitas. For public clarification, our vegetables are all fresh and the quesadillas do contain a mild salsa. In this instance, though, perhaps too mild. The fajitas can be spiced up with the accompanying pico de gallo. Best regards, Brad More

This is the best Mexican food I've ever had. The food is fresh, the prices are cheap, and the service very friendly and quick. It was a fun-filled atmosphere, but would work for a family trip. Loved it!!!

Stopped in for after dinner drinks and dessert. We had to walk into the restaurant, by the bar area to find the hostess. We informed her that we were just going to have drinks and dessert and she said, there's the bar. We checked out the bar area and there weren't any open seats. Looking around the restaurant though, there... More

A decent Texican place right in Boston Commons! Lively and simple ambience - great place to hang out. Nice fajitas, tortillas and spicy salsa!

Found this while walking around Boston on a day trip. Now im not from the south, so by no means have I had the "greatest" Mexican/Southwestern meal in the US, but even in NJ where I'm from, I've had better. The food here is not bad by any means, but its nothing spectacular. While in Boston, I'm sure you can... More

This place was packed when I arrived but luckily a couple at the bar were just leaving, so I ended up with a prime spot aat the bar. Ideal for watching the sport (World Cup) on the TVs. Bar service was excellent and very friendly. Nice selection of beers (I didn't try the 'ritas, but plenty of other folks did).... More

We had a great meal here, tasty food, good service and a nice atmosphere. We all ordered different meals and every one was excellent. Nice that a good helping of guacamole comes with most meals for no extra charge. The price was great too. Would come back here again if we are ever in town again
